and in socially fair and economically efficient matter on pending budget issues. i look forward to the election and providing president obama the support he deserves in carrying out the mandate he received in november. part of the reason is because of the fiscal issues we are facing with sequestration and toxic fiscal issues. >> and some of the push. >> sorry there a reason he wanted that? >> i can't read into barney frank's mind, but certainly the people who supported him felt strongly about that. the push back you are hearing today including from people within the base is he chose somebody who is rewarded a long time loyal staffer and not pick somebody who in a short period can hit ground running and understands the legislative process and the barney frank camp felt he can get in there and be a player. >> let's look at the timeline for the special election and we can't forget the scott brown factor. what can you update us on with that? >> i lot of reports on what scott brown will report. they will hear something early next week and is it is it t still seems like he is going to run. you keep h
looking at 2014, but 2016. around this issue. and engaging that obama coalition. for so long, the passion and enthusiasm had been on the gun lobby side and now you see on the gun control side. i think there had, i think, in some ways been a bit of an apprehension and linking sandy hook to the things going on in chicago for many, many years. over the last three years. 270 school-aged children in chicago have been gunned down. >> yeah. >> that's many, many, many sandy hooks and so i think this incident tragic as it is will in some ways link these two events and link what has been going on a lot of times in the cities around increase gun control and background checks to this larger conversation. we'll see, of course, obama in minneapolis, on monday. doing interesting things there. but again, i think the assault weapons ban, it will be a difficult climb. i think it is interesting and surprising that joe manchin is in this fight, at least in terms of the background checks and i think we have seen this energy now on the gun control side that we haven't seen. >> 92% of all americans in favor of
that but in the heat of campaign last year, secretary clinton and some of president obama's other advisers became kind of a lightning rod on this issue and i think john kerry's trying to move on from that but i think he does want to answer their questions when he's secretary of state. >> let's quickly transition here to the senate seat. we know that there's been a lot of talk about the former senator brown stepping in and also talk to run for governor. when's the latest word since you're on the ground in boston? >> i mean, right now everybody's waiting to hear what the governor will name as an interim replacement for john kerry assuming as we all do that he gets confirmed here quite quickly and then the game is on and i think you're going to have several democrat who is go for the nomination for the special election which will happen in the summer. and everybody's asking, will scott brown throw his hat in the ring, as well? i'm one of those who's 50/50 at this point. i think he did lose last fall to elizabeth warren and may want to run statewide in another way and that is for governor. >> ann, taking
walking to the i guess end of the rainbow on this issue. and i say that because this op-ed, for example, which senator rubio and will be a part of this bipartisan group says we have a defacto amnesty. my hope is president obama will use the voice and influence to further this approach. however, if what he offers is a process for the undocumented that is more lenient and faster and unfair it won't bode well for reform. so senator rubio taking a critical stance of the president without the president actually laying out a plan and we know and you talk to folks on the radio all day, when you mention the word amnesty that is one of those fire words that is going to get a certain portion of this country pretty angry. >> it's true. it's in a category with guns and global warming and -- >> it is a loaded word, it is loaded. >> you got it. listen. the stakes are high for senator rubio because the consensus is he has his eye on 2016 or 2020 and to play a role on a group like this, with senator mccain, is fraught with some peril. i like the fact they're both involved. i like the fact that proceedi
